Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 2800216.

The trees from the Lesnes Abbey Wood that border the road behind our gardens on Elstree Gardens are still in need of being cut back. I live at 67 Elstree Gardens and this tree's roots are now bringing up my slabs in the garden, I have dug up one root but at best would like the tree to at least be trimmed back. We have had walls collapse onto Abbey road and trees have gone with them. Due to the amount of rain we now have I worry this tree will do the same as it is too big. Please send some-one out to have a look at it.
